Boutique Beach

Boutique Beach is in Dhigurah, (meaning long island) in South Ari Atoll, about 20 minutes by plane from the capital, Male’. The island is 3 km in length which is considered to be a reasonably long island in the Maldives. With more than 3 km of natural white sandy beach, it is also considered to a beautiful inhabited island. With a population of about 640, Dhigurah has all the necessary facilities for human habitation, a school, medical Centre and a generous harbor. The population is concentrated on a small area in the north of the island and the rest is mostly for fruit and vegetable gardening and natural vegetation.

Boutique Beach is designed, built and run by Romney Drury, a British diver, who loved this area so much, she gave up her job in the UK to be able to offer divers a wonderful experience for a much more economical price than previously possible in resort diving. The diving is unique in this part of the Maldives as this area is the only place with year-round whale shark sightings. It’s a marine protected area where whale sharks and manta rays are seen every day. The British Whale shark conservation group, who are also based on Dhigurah, have recorded 385 whale sharks in the area. The whale sharks are there all year round, but some weather conditions make them harder to spot. Mantas regularly feed in the lagoon as well as at the cleaning station at Rangali, which is within easy reach.

Boutique Beach is a luxury, contemporary diving hotel located on the beautiful Maldivian island of Dhigurah in the South Ari Atoll. Set against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean’s azure waters and a private 2.5km stretch of white sandy beach and magical sunsets, this property offers guests a truly all-inclusive accommodation and diving package. After a glorious night's sleep, wake up to a freshly prepared breakfast by the chef. Spend your days diving, snorkelling, relaxing or exploring - making memories, before returning 'home' where the Boutique Beach guest support team will welcome you to the rooftop terrace for freshly prepared fruit juice and a fine dinner. A perfect day in Paradise!

The main focus is to give guests opportunities to experience the wonderful marine wildlife available in South Ari Atoll and also to experience the real Maldives, amongst friendly local people who are happy to share their island and their way of life. Meet the locals and experience the local lifestyle while enjoying the beauty of Maldives.
